Logging On: The Unconventional Lumberfolk of Jay Dart

Logging On: The Unconventional Lumberfolk of Jay Dart | Doodlers Anonymous

No two beards are drawn the same in the illustrations of Jay Dart. He is a Canadian artist whose drawings give us a peek of men at work in the wilderness with bright beards and magical tools. Explosions of color in the snowy white landscape of Dart’s imagined world create a sense of fun, friendship, and magic in the middle of nowhere. A childlike whimsy in the colors and patterns contrasts playfully with the hardened austere stereotype we have come to expect from bearded manly men. Dart’s unconventional lumberfolk exist in a frosty place where work is play and the natural overlaps with the magical.
